While technological improvements and stricter safety regulations have reduced coal mining related deaths, accidents are still too common. China, which produces more than one-third of annual global coal output, accounts for more than two-thirds of mining deaths around the world each year.
Surface coal mining in the steep terrain of the central Appalachian coalfields includes: mountaintop removal, contour, area, highwall, and; auger mining.
Video & Security. The NLT Digital network supports the use of IP cameras to monitor key locations underground or on surface. In coal mines, Intrinsically Safe (IS) cameras are required in hazardous areas.
The global mining equipment market is expected to garner $156 billion by 2022, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9% during 2016 – 2022, a new report published by Allied Market Research shows. According to the study, titled "World Mining Equipment Market – Opportunities ...
Ventilation. Good quality air has to be provided for personnel to breath, to dilute both natural and introduced (e.g. diesel exhaust) gases, to dilute or carry away dust and to provide cooling for personnel and machinery.

UNDERGROUND COAL MINING: FACTORS, COST, AND TIME CONSIDERATIONS Presented by: Mark A. Williams Executive Vice President – Engineering Services Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, reef or placer deposit.These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner.
LONGWALL MINING Overview. In the method of secondary extraction known as longwall mining a relatively long mining face (typically in the range 100 to 300m but may be longer) is created by driving a roadway at right angles between two roadways that form the sides of the longwall block, with one rib of this new roadway forming the longwall face.
Plans to extend the life of the Voisey's Bay nickel mine in northern Labrador by moving operations underground – already once delayed – are now on hold.
Coal mining: Coal mining, extraction of coal deposits from the surface of Earth and from underground. Coal is the most abundant fossil fuel on Earth. Its predominant use has always been for producing heat energy.
Underground coal gasification (UCG) is an industrial process which converts coal into product gas. UCG is an in-situ gasification process carried out in non-mined coal seams using injection of oxidants, and bringing the product gas to surface through production wells drilled from the surface.
EquipmentMine is a searchable database of new, used and surplus mining equipment and parts available for sale.

Mining is the removal of valuable raw materials or other geological materials from the earth, from an ore body, vein or (coal) seam. The term also includes the removal of soil.
This site includes news, view, and reviews about geology, mining, and engineering activities related to underground mine design, development, operation, and closure.
Underground hard rock mining refers to various underground mining techniques used to excavate hard minerals such as those containing metals like gold, copper, zinc, nickel and lead or gems such as diamonds.
Conveyor systems provide an efficient, reliable, cost-effective and lower-risk method of removing muck and spoil from tunneling excavation sites.
There are a great many risks to your health which can be linked to coal mining operations. Though there are obvious workplace hazards associated with working in a coal mine, these are not the only risks associated with mining activities.
A one stop UNDERGROUND COAL MINING solution. Stope Technology Services (Stopetek) has its origins in South African gold mines where the company supplies all equipment, supervision, labour and maintenance.
Over 7269 million tonnes (Mt) of hard coal are currently produced worldwide and 787 Mt of lignite. Coal is mined by two methods: surface or 'opencast' mining, and underground mining.
Through internal development and a series of strategic partnering relationships and joint ventures, PHOENIX Process Equipment Co. has established a broad base of water/waste water technologies targeting sand and gravel processing, sand washing, industrial minerals production, and coal tailings dewatering as well as other mining applications in ...
